Chris Robinson Brotherhood – It’s All Over now Baby Blue – The Best Dylan Covers

Chris Robinson Brotherhood is an American blues rock band formed in 2011 by Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson while The Black Crowes were on hiatus. The band has released six studio albums (and a studio Ep): Big Moon Ritual, The Magic Door, Phosphorescent Harvest, Any Way You Love We Know How You Feel, If you lived here you would be home by now (Ep), Barefoot in the head and Servants of the Sun. The band consists of Robinson, guitarist Neal Casal, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Jeff Hill (who replaced original bassist Mark Dutton in 2016), and drummer Tony Leone (who replaced original drummer George Sluppick in January 2015).

We saw them in Oslo before the plague in 2018 they were wonderful!

They’ve played this classic Bob Dylan song for a few years, and their take on it is tremendous. They’ve given the song some real southern swagger.

Following the death of Neal Casal in August 2019 the Chris Robinson Brotherhood announced it would disband.

Them – It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue – The Best Dylan Covers

 

“I think I heard The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan in a record shop in Smith Street. And I just thought it was just incredible that this guy’s not singing about ‘moon in June’ and he’s getting away with it… The subject matter wasn’t pop songs, ya know, and I thought this kind of opens the whole thing up.”
– Van Morrison (Heylin, C. (2003). Can You Feel the Silence?: Van Morrison: A New Biography. pp. 134–135.)

It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” is a song written and performed by Bob Dylan and featured on his Bringing It All Back Home album, released on March 22, 1965.

Morrison’s record producer at the time, Bert Berns, encouraged him to find models for his songs, so he bought Dylan’s Bringing It All Back Home album in March 1965. One of the songs on the album held a unique fascination for Morrison and he soon started performing “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” in small clubs and pubs as a solo artist (without Them).

November 8: Bonnie Raitt Sings Bob Dylan – Happy Birthday Bonnie Raitt

What I love about Bob is the fact that no one’s ever been able to really figure him out. With every reinvention, you never know if it’s a genuine shift or just him slyly ducking out of view. No one has had a more profound cultural and political impact on our generation.

A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall

Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
I’ve stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
I’ve walked and I’ve crawled on six crooked highways
